Mansfield furniture manufacturer’s £4m fitout work

Posted onPosted on 19th Jul

Mansfield-based Deanestor, one of the UK’s leading furniture and fitout specialists, has completed the first phase of a £4.3m contract for the manufacture and installation of more than 600 kitchens for one of the biggest build-to-rent schemes in Manchester.

Deanestor is manufacturing and installing 683 kitchens and around 2,000 fitted wardrobes for the high specification one, two and three-bedroom apartments for modern private residential living. The bespoke fitted wardrobes are supplied in four sizes and finished in contemporary cashmere with a sleek metal edge handle.

Developed by Vita Group and built by John Sisk & Son, 266 luxury apartments have been handed over at Circle Square and construction of the second phase of 417 apartments is well advanced.

The open-plan kitchens have white quartz worktops, an oak-effect finish to the breakfast bar and moulded doors with an integrated handle in indigo blue for the base units and white for the wall cabinets. Door backs are colour-matched, and the cabinets are manufactured by Deanestor to very accurate tolerances for this high specification, design-led build-to-rent scheme.

As part of the design development process, Deanestor created a mock-up kitchen at its Mansfield factory for the client team to review.

Tristan Herbert, development director at Vita Group, said, “These are high quality apartments to meet the rising demand for city living.  Our requirement was for exceptional quality kitchen and bedroom furniture and a robust installation. Design-led aesthetic appeal for the fitted furniture is essential in order to attract tenants and create a fantastic first impression of the apartments.”

“Kitchens are particularly important in an open-plan living space and need to look good for years to come. These kitchens definitely have a wow factor. The finishes such as solid surface worktops are high specification and reflect our brand very well. Deanestor has delivered high quality products in the first phase which have met our expectations and requirements. Their team also kept working throughout the pandemic and supported us in a challenging year. Lettings are going well, and we are looking forward to completion of the second phase.”
